Example 25.  Find the safe concentrated load in the following-
cases by the approximate formula.

(1)   Wrought Iron Plate Girder. Each flange, 10" x J" ; angles?
3 i" x 3i" x i" ; total depth, 3 ft. ;  span, 28 ft. ; /t or/c = 5 tons.
Allow for |" rivets.

(2)   Wrought Iron Rolled Cantilever, H Section. Each flange,
4i" x f"; depth, 8" ; overhang, 8 ft. ; ft or/c=* 5 tons.

(3)  Cast Iron Girder. One flange, 3"xr|"; one flange, 9"xiJ";

depth, 12"; span, 20 feet.

Example 26.  Find the depth of an engine guide bar 10" wide
and 4 ft. span. Total piston pressure = 25 tons ; length of connecting
rod = twice stroke ; and greatest obliquity supposed to occur with
guide block at centre of span. /0=5 tons.

(Hons. Mach. Constr. Ex. 1892.)

Draw crank and rod to scale, Fig. 407. Then the forces are as
at A, and the triangle of forces is drawn parallel, as at D.

Example 27.  The girder stays of a combustion chamber are 21
span, and are spaced 8J" centres apart (see Figs. 31 1 and 312), the sec-
tion being rectangular, 5!" deep by if" wide. There are two bolts to
each stay, 7" apart (Fig. 408). Find the greatest stress in the stay when
steam pressure = 225, Ibs, per sq. in. (Hons. Mach. Constr. Ex. 1891.)

The roof plate is equivalent to a continuous girder over three
spans, as at p. 445, so the pull on each bolt would apparently
be ^J- W. But the plate is continuous transversely also. Therefore```
